Format: Paperback
This is number three of the original books that inspired the TV show and it differs to what you get on the show. This one is quirky and fictional, rather than focusing on real places and sea-creatures.

The Octonauts are alerted when a very glum looking fish comes into view on their video monitors. While Professor Inkling investigates the fish's origins in order to help him, the others attempt to cheer the little fish. They take him to fun places ending at a playground with a merry-go-round where things go topsy-turvy...

This story is so much fun, and it made my kids laugh. They rotated the book several times to suit the orientation of the illustrations and text, and this added to their interest.

With the discovery of the Frown Fish's origins, the kids started the book again and looked at it from a different perspective. During the subsequent reads of the book, I notice them examining each page longer, knowing what they now know...

The illustrations are gorgeous throughout the book and they are packed with details you may miss the first time, and pick up on the second and subsequent readings. The colours are so pretty and bright, and there is a clever play on words in the illustrations that older readers appreciate.

We laughed in delight to see Kwazii, a male, dressed in a fairy dress and speaking of "being glamorous." Until the age of 5 my son loved dressing up in his sister's fairy dresses. Kwazii normalised the fairy dress phase - which my son has since outgrown. I think originally Kwazii was a female character and this changed for the TV show.

As with the first 2 books, there is a double meaning/moral to this story, and it prompted great discussions between my kids.

We have a huge octonaut fan in our house-our 5 year old daughter- and this book is probably one of her favourites.
It's beautifully illustrated of course, all the meomi books are, detailed! colourful and so fun to look at. Each page is gorgeous. The story here is a fish that is frowning and the octonauts so different things trying to get the fish to smile, when it turns out that it's an upside down fish! My husband and I love that the books are all based on real sea creatures so our daughter learns from them.
I recommend this one!

Octonauts books and T.V. episodes are colourful and appealing to young children. The various animals and vegimals work as a team to protect and help the ocean creatures. They each have special jobs and talents in order to do this. The adventures are exciting but not scary. Children learn about creatures in the sea and get a sense of how to co-operate with others, while respecting and appreciating their differences.

My 3 year old son loves everything Octonauts. We read an Octonauts book every single night and his vocabulary is getting better and better. He has even memorized some of the books. His favourite was Sea of Shade, but I think The Frown Fish is quickly becoming his new favourite. Excellent books from a Canadian team, super!

This is another fabulous Octonauts story: lots of intricate pictures, clever plot that sneaks in learning and excellent wording. It's a great bedtime story.
